Since Europe still doesn’t yet have an EU-wide roaming agreement, and since free city Wi-Fi isn’t as widespread across Europe as it is in some places, staying connected while traveling can get quite expensive. So over the past few months, I have devised a workaround that allows me to stay in touch with friends and family, check my email, and get around, without getting ripped off.

Apple has released a temporary fix while it works on a more permanent solution to the problem.
With a few weeks to go until Apple unveils the future of its iOS and OS X operating systems, several details have already been leaked about the upcoming releases. One of the most interesting features detailed in recent reports concerns iOS 9, as Apple is apparently working to make it run much more smoothly on older iPhones and iPads.
The oldest devices that iOS 8 can run on are the iPhone 4s and iPad 2, although many people who own either model have complained of several performance and battery issues affecting their devices since installing iOS 8. Some were able to switch back to iOS 7 last fall, but many others have been stuck with laggy performance on their devices.
